What is groupage?

Instead of transporting your household goods separately in a 'dedicated' container, at Putters International, you can choose to consolidate them with shipments from others in a shared container heading to the same destination. This approach allows us to offer you a much better price for your shipment.

What are the benefits of groupage?

In addition to the significant cost savings because you only pay for the portion of the container you actually fill with your shipment, there are two other advantages to groupage:

  • Containers with business shipments often receive priority over containers with personal belongings, ensuring faster processing.
  • Better-filled containers mean fewer containers to transport, reducing the environmental impact. Therefore, groupage is also a more sustainable choice.

Putters International maintains an excellent network to ensure the regularity of departures. If you want to know more about the frequency to your destination, please don't hesitate to contact us.
